of chefs, first, the latest on the tragedy in colorado and how it affects us all. >>> good morning, i'm melissa harris-perry. today, president barack obama will travel to aurora, colorado to meet with the grieving families of the victims of a shooting street that turned a midnight screening of "the dark knight rises" into a horrific tragedy. 26 victims remain hospitalized this morning. 9 in critical condition. the suspect, 24-year-old james holmes, a former neuroscience graduate student, is being held in solitary confinement, while he awaits a court appearance in the county on monday. yesterday, federal and local authorities disarmed the explosives rigged inside holmes' apartment, designed to kill whomever entered it. police have allowed residents evacuated from surrounding homes to return. let's get the latest from kristen dahlgren from aurora. good morning, kristen. >> reporter: good morning, melissa. you can see holmes' apartment behind me here, the one on the third floor there with windows broken out by authorities. as they were disarming those bombs. his building is still roped o

's ed lavandera is in aurora for us. ed, what do we know about this package? >> reporter: well, we're still trying to gather information on what exactly is inside that package, wolf. but as you mentioned that law enforcement official telling cnn that on monday police and fbi discovered a package that was apparent apparently sent by james holmes, the 24-year-old suspected gunman. now it's unclear obviously if this package was indeed sent by him, it was clearly sent before he was taken into custody. it arrived at some point on monday at the university mail room. we've also been told by hospital officials over the last couple of days this is something we've been monitoring for some time that there were two packages that were suspicious and were being looked into, one found in the mail room and also one that was actually delivered to a university professor. so we've been trying to nail down more information on this. and we'll continue to do so, wolf. >> what's the university of colorado saying about all of this, ed? >> reporter: well, now that the details have come out that this packag

[laughter] there is some tension between gwen and me over one issue, what color we are wearing. things got really tense yesterday when you both showed up at the office wearing bright yellow. -- when we both showed up at the office wearing bright yellow. she ended up going home. i and the luckiest person in television. gwen too work

what kristen was mentioning to us, the president kicking off his bus tour tomorrow. pawlenty and jindal will bracketing with him and rob portman as well, traveling to new hampshire this weekend. no word if he'll be meeting with romney. where do we stand in terms of the what's the messaging we're looking for going forward as the president goes out there and tries to make the message, put the message out there, that romney is a jobs expovertier? >> of course, the message that the obama campaign has been pushing hard from the very beginning is attacking mitt romney's record at bain capital. and as controversial as that tactic has been from both republicans and democrats, most notably corey booker and bill clinton, that's really the lane that the obama campaign is staying in. and they're sort of attacking bain capital from every angle they can find, their latest political attack ad against romney focused on bain capital investing in companies that ship jobs overseas. and that's -- i think it's a strategy that's really been working for the obama campaign. he's been able to paint romney as so

that strange to the congress. >> well, then give us some assurance. tell us that behind the scenes at least there's some constructive conversation going on about how to deal with this fiscal cliff before we go over it. >> well, i believe that the budget priorities committee, the committee on budget priorities and policies, they have said to us that this is not really a cliff in the common sense of the word, but more like a slope because i do believe that even after the elections, there is plenty enough time for us to come back here in a lame duck and do what is necessary to extend budgetary considerations for at least a year while we'll have time to really work on things we need to do. and that is to have the massive overhaul of our tax code. i think that we're in the trouble we're in today not so much because of people's priorities but because we have a problem with our tax code that needs to be fixed. i think that's what's important about that vote today. >> but, congressman, that approach of, we'll all get together and work together after the election, someday never seems to come. you we

few people really know where the idea came from for the statue, so give us some insight into how it came into being. >> it came into being in france in the middle of the 19th century. it was 1865 right after the assassination of abraham lincoln, and a group of french people behind the radio were a emotionally tied to the united states. they love the american form of government, and they were abolitionists, so they have a particular affection for president lincoln, so they came together at the home of a man who was friends's leading specialist on the united states. smoke-filled died in 1859, -- toquevill died in 1859, so a group of guys got together, and the idea was to try to come up with a way of commemorating the life achievement to celebrate the victory of the north in the civil war and to make a critical on their own government. france had an authoritarian government run by napoleon iii, and it was a government that was friendly to liberty. they tried to put these together to commemorate abraham lincoln and a way of being critical to the government and so the ideath it, was t

to find a discriminator that exists or existed within the usda. i think it's incumbent upon us to find equal protection for americans and if people are being discriminated against, we should fix that. and i don't know that it exists to the extent that it has been alleged by injury concerned about the political movement in this country that the fear on the part of republicans to make any comment that has to do with some sensitive issue and to go along with programs that may or may not have merit. but i would like to see the equal protection part and i look around this room and i think there's an opportunity to come to the congress and i think there's an opportunity to get involved in farming. i look around my neighbors and where was the special program for the swedes or irish that's just been about 15 miles of me. if they didn't -- to get started farming and guess it was hard. if you can show me people are being discriminated against want to help you fix that but i don't think on the other side we get where we need to go as a nation if we set up special projects for people that are defi
economy. we have differences in our tariffs. that causes us to borrow money. the light borrowing against the store. in host: i heard tariffs in those comments. is there a trade policy and are we playing on a level playing field? maybe you can pick up that point. >guest: one of the big issues in terms of trade policy is how the u.s. responds and crafts its relationship with china. as of last year, the senate passed a tough bill to clamp down on the chinese currency manipulation. china would not call of manipulation, obviously. the bill was in the house but it is opposed by the obama administration. they don't want to hurt their relationship with china and house republicans have no intention of bringing this up. on the other hand, mitt romney has said he will declare china a currency manipulator on the first day of his presidency. it is on clearview will follow through with that because there are real geopolitical consequences to that. that is something we are seeing in the campaign. host: back to the farm bill -- if there were an emergency measure, how would the politics of that play out?
's used this weird timeline of '99 to 2002 when all the bad stuff happened, i wasn't there. >> right. it's a product of the romney campaign's attempt to keep this incredibly simple. in the primary, the same documents were kicking around in the primary and the campaign would never engage in them directly. the republicans opponents were shopping them around but they backgrounded reporters, talked reporters out of writing about it. they kept everything very abstract. there's a saying if you're explaining, you're losing. they clearly believe it. they have not explained everything. in a presidential campaign that's not an option. the heat sometimes gets so hot, you have to explain, you have to engage. what they have succeeded in doing is pushing all the explanation into the summer and fall, when they could have done it last year. >> now you're starting to see republicans question sort of what's going on and how they are handling this. politico has a fairly extensive roster of prominent republican strategists saying you guys are going to have to tackle this. jonathan bernstein in the "washingt
called injustice by its name. for everyone much us a particular person comes to mind. someone who set a standard of conduct and made us better by their example. for me that man is my father, george romney. [applause] it wasn't just that ma my man helped write the civil rights legislation for michigan though he did he helped create michigan's first civil rights commission and as governor he marched for civil rights on the streets of detroit though he did those things two. more than these acts it was the kind of man he was and way he dealt with whatever person, crack or white. -- black or white. he was a man of intention and a man of faith who knew every person was a child of god. [applause] i'm grateful to him, for some things. and above all, for the knowledge of god, whose ways are not always our ways but whose justice is certain and whose mercy endures forever. [applause] every good cause on this earth relies in the end on a plan bigger than ours. without dependence on god, dr. king said, our efforts turn to ashes, and our sunrises in a darkest night. unless his spirit pervades our l
, but a little patient with us here, but they are moving as quickly as they can. you can see what they are up against here, just the physical nature having to remove things like this. this scene is repeating over and over in the states. >> brian, stay with us. things are changing by the hour. brian todd reporting live in west virginia. and also this morning we are asking leaders from right across the region, how are you going to fix this thing? when is the power coming back for people? first, the mayor of lewisburg, john manchester, is going to join us at 6:30 eastern time. >>> more on the heat wave and when we expect relief. alexandra is in for rob marciano, what a horrible situation. folks are without power and a couple of hot days forecasted for these states. >>> places like minneapolis, the heat index or what it will feel like, 112 degrees there. one thing you'll notice waking up on the east coast to go out to get your paper, there's more moisture in the area. the dew point is higher than it's been, so temperatures for some along the eastern seaboard may not be as hot, but the uncomfortab
an historic number of seats in the u.s. house and made big gains in the u.s. senate. the cook political report says he believes a majority of the 87 gop freshmen elected in the 2010 shellacking are in good shape but he predicts no more than an eight seat gain for democrats. >> i believe what the american crossroads said is partially true. is it going to be sky-high, probably not. but there will be some mobilization on the republican side for or against, if you will, obamacare. let's be honest. the majority of the people that were for obamacare are voting for president obama and the folks against it clearly will vote for governor romney. the real question is, hopefully we'll have this conversation, is whether or not health care is going to be a major issue for down ballot individuals that are running on state-wide offices come november. probably not. it most likely still will be the economy. we saw a recent poll that came out today that said 44% of americans still frankly do not understand what obamacare is and that's still not the number one issue for them. it still is the economy. at the end
us? >> sure, zoraida. i think we'll expect the horse race all the way up to november to stay this close. this is going to be one of those real, real tight presidential elections p. but, of course, there are certain bullet points that we focus on when we're looking at these numbers. let's look at this number on the economy. the economy, issue number one in this election. what most voters will likely vote on come november. mitt romney has a six-point advantage over president obama right now when asked who has a better idea to improve the economy. very good news for the romney campaign up in boston when they see that number. however, out in chicago, you can see that the obama campaign can take solace in this number on likability. a 20-point gap, zoraida. president obama, 60% of americans like president obama while only 47% like romney. now, the reason why that's important for president obama and how you all tie it together regarding the economy, president obama has been making the argument that he needs another four years to turn around the economy and that he was handed a very
'm just guessing. he will always soar to great heights here on the riduculist. that's it for us. "early start" begins now. >>> the horse race for the white house. it's close. a brand-new poll shows one candidate with a slight lead. >>> street fight in syria. the assad regime sending in more troops as it struggles to hold the country's largest city. >>> mystery solved. take a look. police say this surveillance video of a man putting a woman in the trunk of a car isn't what it looks like. not sure what it looks like, but i promise we will tell you what it looks like. there it is. >> there. >> i think it's more dumb than it is scary in the end. stay tuned. we'll tell you exactly what's going op. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. 5:00 a.m. in the east. coming one a man who says he has been cured of hiv. dr. sanjay gupta talked to him. you'll hear about that later this hour. really remarkable. >>> plus, brett favre couldn't stay retired after all. he's back in football taking a job you might not expect. we'll tell you all about it. stay tuned.
